9:01 am
>> reporter: constructed during the great depression, the massive and graceful hoover dam has sat astride the colorado river for three- quarters of a century. a dam many doubted ever could be built but which still supplies power and water today. >> you have eight generating units on the nevada side and nine generating units on the arizona side. >> reporter: later on sunday morning, come celebrate the 75th anniversary of the hoover dam. the dam that built the west. >> osgood: jamie lee curtis is a big star in hollywood who tries never to lose sight of the little things that really count. this morning she talks about that with julie chen. >> reporter: jamie lee curtis is an actress. >> what i'm about to do is...

9:03 am
when you attend the sort of event our bill geist just survived. >> reporter: now you might think saturday night in omaha sounds a little dull. but when they start lighting the roler derby girls on fire, you'll think again. one reason saturday night was an absolute blast. you'll see for yourselves later on sunday morning. >> osgood: we'll also remember simon and gar garfunkel's big concert in the park. hear from the man who reorganized the auto industry, consider what's in a name with the fast draw and more. but first here are the headline for this september 19, 2010. last sunday morning of summer. after spending over a year in an iranian jail, sarah shourd is now home. she's one of three american hikers charged with spying after wandering across iran's border. shourd arrived at washington's de los airport this morning. michelle miller has the
9:04 am
latest. >> reporter: before leaving the middle east yesterday, sarah shourd thank the arab nation of oman for helping broker her release. >> i will always associate your country with the first breath of my freedom. >> reporter: an ally of both the united states and iran mediated the half million dollar bail that led to shourd's freedom. in her statement shourd made no mention of her time in iran's notorious evan prison but did ask that her fellow hikers not be forgotten. >> please, please extend your prayers to my financee shane and my friend josh. >> these two young men have been held without cause now. >> reporter: second of state hillary rodham clinton says she's continuing diplomatic negotiations for their freedom through third parties. >> it would be a very significant humanitarian gesture for the iranians to release them. >> reporter: but on iranian television president mahmoud

9:09 am
>> osgood: not when you're talking about a certain giant concrete structure that's having its diamond anniversary. our cover story is reported now by susan spencer of "48 hours." >> reporter: more than a million people flock to the remote desert on the arizona/nevada border each year. they oo and aaah at a
9:10 am
75-year-old marvel of engineering, the majestic hoover dam. they've all seen the pictures. it's not the same. look at that. look how far that is though. >> it's huge. bigger than i thought it would be. >> reporter: it sure is. at 726 feet, it would tower over the washington monument. the concrete in it would pave a road from new york to san francisco. that's enough to build a sidewalk around the equator. that's what it took to stop the mighty colorado river dead in its tracks. as for environmental concerns.... >> the conservation in those days had a very different meaning from what it means today. >> reporter: it meant not protecting resources but exploiting them. says michael hillsick the author of a new history of the hoover dam. after all, the region had suffered devastating floods and droughts.
9:11 am
the west needed power and water for its developing cities. so in 1931 when hoover was president, construction began. and the question wasn't, should we build this dam? but rather, can we? >> it was well understood that this was going to be possibly the most challenging project that engineers had ever faced. the builders had to invent construction techniques. they had to invent equipment. this dam was invented as it was created. >> reporter: that discourageded no one. this was the depression. red lines were grow... bread lines were growing. people were desperate. the dam meant a job. thousands came. soon a whole town, bolder city, sprang up near the site. in their eagerness many workers discovered they had underestimated both the risks of the work and the misery of the desert sun. >> this was a furnace.
9:12 am
it was like working on the inside of a blast furnace. that first summer he had... you had scores and scores of men kiehling over from heat work and dying from what the contractors termed natural causes. >> reporter: in 1981 several former workers spoke with a documentary crew. >> how hot it would get. >> down at the dam, i saw 145 degrees down there in that canyon with no air circulation. if you had a little breeze, then you would get maybe down to 130 or 125. >> reporter: officially 96 men died building the dam. unofficially no one really knows. in the deep tunnels, men would sicken from breathing carbon monoxide from truck exhaust. while far above the canyon floor, workmen's lives literally hung in the balance. >> they were known as high scalers. >> reporter: 500 feet. >> 500 feet on chairs suspended from ropes from the
9:13 am
top of the cliff. their job was to groom the cliff side so that rocks wouldn't fall on the men working below. >> reporter: so they're chicago he willing away. >> they're chicago he willing away, boring holes for dynamite. they're placing dynamite. they're doing all these things and they're doing it basically suspended in midair. some of them got reputations as being real acrobats. people would come to the top of the cliff to watch them perform. >> reporter: the project was finished in 1935 for more than $100 million. equivalent to about a quarter of the country's entire annual public works budget back then. f.d.r. himself showed up to dedicate it. >> on behalf of the nation, we say to you well done. >> reporter: it's its official name was bolder dam. the democrats in power, having stripped republican hoover's name right off it. >> hoover, of course, is out of office. not only was he not invited.
9:14 am
it was a full day of ceremony. many many speeches including the keynote speech by the president himself. and herbert hoover's name was not mentioned once. >> reporter: it would take 14 years and a republican congress to rename it hoover dam. by then, it had started its long and storied movie career. >> beautiful, isn't it? great monument to man's unceasing industry and his stubborn faith in the future. >> reporter: from hitchcock's saboteur in 1942 to transformers just a few years ago. >> this is fun. >> the only way to travel. >> reporter: in between in 1964's viva las vegas, ann margret and elvis flew over it. >> you know this dam makes enough electricity to light up homes 300 miles away. >> reporter: in laugh vacation
9:15 am
chevy chase climbed up it. >> please take all the dam pictures you want. now are there any dam questions? >> reporter: in superman, the bad guys detonated it and the super one reassembled it. and now at&t is draping it in orange. ken rice, who manages the dam, thinks he understands its appeal. >> i think success, power. i mean, you look at hoover dam, 75 years doing what we've been doing for 75 years, storing that water, delivering that water and creating power. you know, that's a story of success. >> reporter: he appreciates its beauty as well. the clean art deco lines, striking sculptures, italian tile floors, and those gleaming turbines. >> well, you have eight generating units on the nevada side and nine generating units on the arizona side.
9:16 am
so a total of 17 generator units. >> reporter: the dam today supplies power for more than a million people and water for some 20 million. that's far less than needed and at a huge cost. continuing drought, growing populations, and higher demand have left the once mighty colorado a mere trickle when it reaches the sea. wildlife habitats perhaps whole species have been lost. even the dam's most die-hard fans concede it probably wouldn't be built today. but they insist it was both right and remarkable to build it then. >> so the foresight that those folks had to build this structure back in the '30s and put this structure in place to harness the colorado river and to look at future needs of the colorado was just amazing at that point in time that those folks could even think that. >> reporter: you almost get emotional talking about this dam. >> absolutely.
9:17 am
this is a wonderful place. i mean when you really think about it and you come to hoover and all the history behind hoover and everything, it is. it's easy to get caught up in it. >> you know it's not the tallest dam. it's not the biggest dam. but it's got a grace and power that really takes people... really seizes the imagination. ♪ >> reporter: the dam's future seems secure. its birthday present will be a new bridge across the canyon, a perfect vantage point from which to ex-claim the obvious: hot dam and happy birthday. >> osgood: ahead... ♪ you move too fast >> osgood: a simon and garfunkel reunion ♪ got to make the morning

>> osgood: you won't find the job title car czar in any list of official u.s. government positions. yet that's exactly the position steven ratner found himself in a year-and-a-half ago. as you tells our colleague anthony mason it was quite a ride. >> today after consulting with my auto task force, i can report that the necessary steps have been taken. >> reporter: as the american auto industry was swerving to avoid a disastrous crash last year, president obama handed the steering wheel to a wealthy wall street investment banker who had only... who would only appear at the rear of the president's news conferences but played a central role in the crisis.
9:26 am
how much did you know about the auto industry going into this? >> roughly zero. >> reporter: but steve ratner got a crash course. as a lead advisor on the president's auto task force, a job the media dubbed the car czar. ratner helped allocate billions of tarp dollars to try to save detroit. >> i would wake up in the night sometimes and say to myself, this whole auto industry is resting on whether our team can figure this problem out. it was pretty scary. >> reporter: it looked even scarier when in march of 2009 ratner and the auto team went to look under the hood of g.m. on a visit to the motor city. did the management at general motors surprise you? >> i was shocked. >> reporter: in his new book "overall," ratner calls the company's bookkeeping mind bogglingly shoddy. >> it was the worst finance group we'd ever seen. >> reporter: the worst? >> pretty much.
9:27 am
this is a company that could not tell you on any given day within $500 million how much cash it had. >> just updating the congressman on what's going on in the auto business. >> reporter: as g.m. came to washington bleeding billions in losses and begging for what would ultimately be a $50 billion bailout, ceo rick wagoner blamed the japanese, the unions and the economy, everyone but himself. was g.m. at all prepared for bankruptcy? >> no, they had done nothing. not only were they not prepared but rick wagoner had very specifically said he didn't want to prepare. >> reporter: what kind of position is that for an executive to take? >> frankly it's an irresponsible position. >> reporter: at what point did you decide that rick wagoner needed to go? >> quite early on. >> reporter: on march 26, 2009, rat ner called the g.m. ceo to his office in the treasury building and fired him. >> i said to him back in mid march he had graciously offered to step aside if the government thought it was
9:28 am
necessary. and that we had concluded it was. >> reporter: rick wagoner's response was to point the finger at the union boss of the united auto workers. >> he asked me if i was going to fire the head of the uaw. i think that was his way of saying this is his fault at least as much if not more than my fault. i said i wasn't in charge of firing him. >> reporter: rick wagoner's successor to cut costs would propose selling the renaissance center. g.m.'s iconic headquarters in downtown detroit. and moving the company to the suburbs. >> when i exposed that to some of my white house colleagues they said are you out of your mind? we really can't let g.m. leave detroit when detroit had, i believe, literally 25% unemployment at the time. >> reporter: how quickly was that idea abandoned. >> less time than this interview has taken place. >> reporter: ratner who reported to the president's chief economic advisor, larry summers, concluded the only way to save g.m. was for the government to buy it.
9:29 am
you made an early promise to larry summers. you said to him don't worry. we're not going to own g.m. >> i was wrong. >> reporter: did he blanch when you told him that it was going to be 61% ownership by the u.s. government? >> he grim as. we all grim ased. >> reporter: but ratner said the president signed off on it more easily than he signed off on saving chrysler over which the task force was divided. at the meeting to determine chrysler's fate, the vote was 4 to 3 in favor of letting chrysler fail. >> larry summers turned to me and said you've got to make a decision. i hemmed and haued and agonized. i finally said we should try to save it. that made it 4 to 4. larry cast the deciding vote within that particular meeting which was to go to the president with a recommendation that we save it. >> reporter: it was march of 2009 ratner remembers, and the recession was at its worst. >> we were looking into a black hole. it just seemed like an
9:30 am
imprudent risk to let chrysler go as some kind of social experiment to see what would happen if we felt it could be made viable. >> reporter: what do you think would have happened if we hadn't saved g.m.? >> those two companies together, you would have lost a million jobs instantly. the entire auto industry and all the ancillary pieces that are around it and all the people who depend on it for their livelihoods would have been out of work. it would have been an economic disaster beyond all comprehension. >> reporter: after g.m. and chrysler emerged from bankruptcy, ratner left the auto task force to face his own problems. an investigation into whether he and the firm he founded, the quadr angle group had bribed officials to get pension fund investments, accusations he denies in his book but won't discuss. >> i can't say anything about it. >> reporter: general motors, the company he helped rescue, is is profitable again. would you buy g.m. stock now? >> at the right price i would definitely buy g.m. stock.
9:31 am
>> reporter: the tax payers paid more than $80 billion to save the auto industry, but steve ratner says he was no regrets. >> the industry is actually adding jobs for the first time in a long time. i feel good about it. i feel like we did the right thing. >> people never thought about money as a subject for a movie. >> osgood: next katie couric talks with "wall street" director oliver stone. later julie chen. one on one with actress jamie lee curtis. that's in andy harris' unfair tax plan. 23% sales tax. a 23% sales tax will cut my business in half. would be devastating. andy harris' 23% sales tax absolutely makes no sense. 23% sales tax would really make things unaffordable. that's too high for the average american out here.
9:32 am
i don't know how we would manage it really. don't like that idea. we can't afford andy harris' idea.
9:33 am
>> i'll tell you what. i'll make you a deal. you stop telling lies about me and i'll stop telling the truth about you. >> it's sunday morning on cbs. here again is charles osgood. >> osgood: gordon gekko returns to the screen in oliver stone's new film "wall street: money never sleeps." it's a crash course in all that's gone wrong in high finance since michael douglas first played gordon gekko. katie couric went with stone to the investment world's own center stage. >> couric: so here we are. do you feel like you're stepping into the lion's den at all? >> no, it's fun.
9:34 am
we shot this in 1987. >> couric: on the floor of the new york stock exchange, oliver stone still commands plenty of attention. >> how is is the blue stock? >> couric: 23 years after he made the original wall street, the film an unvarnished and unflattering look at the financial industry is still for many here required viewing. >> a couple of thousands up. >> i have to buy some stock here. what do you offer? >> what are you looking at? >> excuse me. 80,000-and-a-half. >> couric: the agitated man with the moustache is real life former trader mike ritiglaon. you haven't changed a bit. >> thank you, katie. this is the longest 15 minutes of fame. this was filmed in '87. we talk about it every day. >> couric: wow. are you worried that this 1987 film was so successful in capturing the... it was kind
9:35 am
of a kismet moment for the american psyche that it's going to be hard to replicate it because i know this is the first sequel you've ever done, right? >> if i really wanted to do a sequel i would have done it in the 1990s because that's more sense. it's fresh in the memory making more money. you're facing 23 years later. some people there's a whole new generation that doesn't know the original. i'm fine. i really did this movie because it was worth doing on its... because of the 2008 crash and that gave it a definition, a background. >> yes, sir, thank you. thank you for the chance. you will not regret this. you're with a winner. >> right. >> reporter: in the original wall street a young trader charlie sheen bud fox gets involved with the predatory corporate raider gordon gekko in one of michael douglas's most notorious roles. >> come on, pal. tell me something i don't know. it's my birthday. surprise me. >> reporter: at the time it was a cautionary tale, but
9:36 am
compared to the recent economic crisis, it seems almost innocent. >> 200,000 shares. >> couric: in 1987 the stakes were smaller, the cell phones were bigger, and the prevailing mood could be summed up in one iconic phrase. >> greed. for lack of a better word. greed is good. >> reporter: the new movie "wall street: money never sleeps" follows another young trader played this time by a man who falls in with a very fast, very rich crowd led by josh brolin as the super banker. >> disappointing. i really saw so much in you jacob. >> reporter: michael douglas reprises his oscar-winning role picking up gekko's story as he's released from prison. >> one mobile phone. >> reporter: a man who has lost everything including the love of his daughter, now engaged to lee buff.
9:37 am
>> we're supposeded to make each other feel safe. >> reporter: like many of his movies, wall street echos oliver stone's personal life. he was born in new york city, the son of a successful stockbroker. did you ever want to follow in your father's footsteps at all or did you feel like he got ultimately kind of kicked in the teeth at the end? >> my dad loved what he did. he loved business. he loved writing about it. he lived his whole life out here. although he didn't, you know, he had a tough time because of the new changes at the end he really... he worked until he died. it gave him satisfaction. >> couric: but stone wanted more. after a brief stint at yale, he joined the army and went to vee... vietnam. he came home a decorated combat veteran but was confused and conflicted. >> how do you come back from
9:38 am
the war? do you come back stone dead inside or with a heart still? that was the hardest thing for me was not fighting the enemy although they were significant. it was to try to keep your own humanity alive inside you. war is a curse because it scars people for life. >> reporter: you still seem scarred by your own personal experience there. >> but i overcame it into the sense that i readapted to society. i made three movies about it. i was able to exercise some of these... objectioner sis some of these devils. >> couric: stone turned his vietnam demons into a box office success winning a director oscar for platoon. >> i don't want you to feel sorry for me. >> reporter: and another for born on the fourth of july. >> i have my hands, my eyes, my ears. i have my heart. >> reporter: he since has become one of hollywood's most prolific and controversial directors tackling subjects that define his generation.

including the assassination of j.f.k., the doors... ♪ girl, we couldn't get much higher ♪ >> couric: nixon. >> i'm not a quitter. never have been. >> osgood: and george w. bush. >> i won the election. that's what this is. any doubt of my judgment. >> as much as i may detest his policies i tried to make him human. some people criticize when they said it was too sympathetic to bush. i thought it was empathetic. there's a big difference to me. but i walkd in his shoes. you understand by going across the valley and walking in the shoes of someone you do not like, it makes you more human and more tolerant. when i do a wall street movie i have to think like the bankers. i have to feel for them too because they have their point of view. >> couric: you spent a lot of time down here on wall street shooting, right? >> yeah. >> couric: he's a provocative
9:40 am
person who likes to rattle cages turning his lens on fidel castro, the israeli- palestinian conflict and venezuela's president hugo chavez. you're absolutely fearless in the subject matter and the people you focus on and you try to profile or explain. >> i like hugo chavez personally. but i think, you know, and he's made mistakes but i don't live with my conscience when i'm alive-- i'm going to be dead one day very shortly probably-- what have i done? i've just added to the american pain. all my taxes are going to bombing people in afghanistan and iraq. i'm not happy about that. what can i do for my children to change things? >> you know what they say. bulls make money. bears make money. the pigs, they get slaughtered. >> couric: stone's latest wall street movie got unscheduled and unwelcome publicity when star michael douglas announced he was battling throat cancer. i watched this movie and i
9:41 am
thought, gee, i wonder if he was sick during the filming of this. >> no. no, michael was... i couldn't see it. in fact we went to the film festival. we previewd there. it was a very wonderful experience. he looked strong. i couldn't tell. he said himself it was early summer when it came on. apparently he had it checked quite a bit. nothing. >> couric: it was undiagnosed. >> no he went to doctors. they couldn't figure out anything until i guess august. so it was a shame. i know he's going through a period of difficulty. i pray for him. >> couric: in the film douglas's gekko is still a bit slimy but older and seemingly more human. >> the one thing i learned in jail is that money is not the master in life. time is. your time is just about up. >> reporter: has gordon gekko gone all soft on us? >> soft, no but he's got a heart. he's not soft. he's a tough guy. gordon. he does tough things in the movie. i won't tell you what he does
9:42 am
but he does play dirty tricks. there's two twists in the movie. >> couric: he's still the old gordon gekko in many ways. >> part. definitely when you're that age-- and i am-- we all know the beatles song, right. >> couric: when i'm 64. happy birthday today by the way. >> thank you, katie. when you reach that age, i mean, you better have come to some conclusion that money isn't everything. >> couric: like the market itself, it's hard to predict how oliver stone's new movie will do. but on the street at least, the inside word is bullish. this is a time when wall street isn't exactly kind of at the pinnacle of respect in this country. >> i think people are going to enjoy this movie.
